Special Events

CETA is pleased to offer these special events with masterful storytellers of theatre.

“Who Tells Your Story?”

 

HAMILTON

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash hit musical received a record-setting 16 Tony nominations, winning eleven, including Best Musical and was also the recipient of the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album and 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. We’ll take an easy Metrorail ride (one block from the hotel) to the Pantages Theatre at famous Hollywood & Vine.

CAGNEY

Direct from its hit run in New York, Cagney is the award-winning musical that follows the life of the legendary James Cagney from the streets of New York to his rise as one of the brightest stars of Hollywood, from a vaudeville song-and-dance man to the cinema’s original tough guy. Broadway’s Robert Creighton, in the role he was born to play, leads the original cast of six who tap dance through a score that blends original music with classic George M. Cohan favorites, including Give My Regards To Broadway, Grand Old Flag, and Yankee Doodle Dandy. CETA members will enjoy a talk-back with the cast following the performance.  This ticket is included with your registration.
